Manchester United have now booked their place to the next round of the Carabao Cup, a Cup they are looking to defend haven won it last season, they can now look to bounce back from last weekend's defeat against Huddersfield in the Premier League against to Spurs on Saturday, October 28.

Since the first minute we felt we were in the game. Goals from Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre inspired the 2-1 win and Mourinho tore into his players following the final whistle, criticising their attitude and application. The Swedish centre half again looked shaky, failing to deal with an aerial ball and nearly allowing Jordan Ayew to nip in and score.

The hosts made a good start but still found themselves 1-0 down after 20 minutes.

Rashford provided the assist - a brilliant flick into the path of Lingard - that saw United to take the lead in the first half, and Swansea struggled to cope with the movement of the England global, who continually swapped positions with Martial.

But Swansea, just as they had been in losing 4-0 to United at the Liberty Stadium in August, were accommodating hosts and provided little contradiction to the belief that a long season lies ahead of them.

It also said that 13 policemen, including four officers and nine conscripts, were injured and one policeman was missing. Fifteen militants, who were reported to belong to an extremist group called Hasm, also died in the attack.

He placed a header from the edge of the box perfectly to convert a Matteo Darmian cross. It was a sensational finish and the goal not only doubled United's lead but also doubled Lingard's tally for the game.

Sergio Romero made late stops from substitutes Tammy Abraham and Leroy Fer, but United eased into the last eight after sending on Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku from the bench.

It is unlikely that Mourinho will select the pair together away from home against the so-called bigger teams, but there are certainly occasions where they could line up in the same Premier League XI.

As expected, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho rung the changes for the League Cup fixture in Wales, but United proved too strong for a Swansea side that are struggling for form in the early stages of the 2017-18 campaign.

It's the League Cup!
